Dear Friend,
Dont worry you will get well soon. I feel Homeopathy can help you faster in this condition, take medicne Arnica 30, 4 Pills every 2 hourly for 4 days.Also take enough rest for just four days.
still if u are not better take an x ray of right knee and consult a ortho doctor for opinion.
But i strongly feel Homeopathic medicine Arnica 30 will help you.Arnica will cure any internal injury and pain caused due to fall.
Thank you

Hi Welcome to HCM.
It looks like you have ligament tear in the knee joint. Knee joints are weight bearing joints, any injury to them should not be taken lightly. If not treated properly, over a period of time it may cause more trouble. I suggest you consult an orthopedic surgeon right away.

I broke the bone on the side of my hand (under my pinky finger) the dr. At urgent care wrapped it until I can get in to see a orthopedic dr. He said my bone is split about 2 mm apart. I m wondering what they will do...pin it with surgery, numb it and fuse it back together?

I recently had hip replacement surgery. It has been two weeks and the stiches are suppose to com out, but instead of going back to the surgeon I have a previous appointment with my family docter next week and I thought I would have it done then.
